Voice over IP business telecoms provider Blueface has entered the mobile space after striking an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) deal with Three.

The company will offer business customers unlimited Ireland and UK landline and mobile calls, free VoIP calls and unlimited data and texts for a set price of €69 per month.

Blueface is the first MVNO on the Three network.

The company’s growth and development has been supported recently by Enterprise Ireland through large grant investment, which will underpin the expansion of the business and generate 12 new jobs.

“Blueface will deliver a truly unified telecoms proposition and will manage business communications across landline and mobile in a fully converged, unified way – one voicemail, one call management portal and one bill are just for starters,” the company’s CEO Alan Foy said.

“Blueface has really exciting development plans in the next 12 months and we are committed to rolling out further business grade features, products and services to customers,” Foy added.
